Carvoeiro is very popular for family holidays
|Carvoeiro is a lively fishing village which has become increasingly popular during recent years, whilst retaining its charm and character. The fishing boats come and go, and fresh fish and locally produced fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the markets. The area offers a wide selection of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. Locally produced pottery and crafts are sold in shops in the centre of town and on stalls in the square. During the summer the square is the venue for live music and dancing. The beaches along this particular stretch of coast are second to none and many offer a variety of water sports.|
Home to the Pestana Golf complex, Carvoeiro is a golfers paradise with many courses being accessible by car. Carvoeiro is conveniently located for Zoormarine and numerous water parks.
The centre of Carvoeiro isn’t very big and there are just two roads leading down into the town where they meet in a small square behind the beach. There is limited parking in the square and it can get quite confused if buses or coaches are picking up/dropping off, so it’s best to park up the hill and walk down!
There are plenty of shops in the town for your everyday needs.. There is also a big Intermarché on the Lagoa road on the outskirts of Carvoeiro for even more choice.
The town beach, Praia do Carvoeiro is a beautifully sheltered sandy bay and spreads out just in front of the square with cliffs protecting it on either side. There are bars and cafés ideally placed around the square to still enjoy the view when you leave the beach!
